I took this photo of a beautiful yellow wild flower a couple of years ago and still have not found out what it is. Does anyone know what kind of flower it is?

Its probably some member of the senecio genus, but the rolled up petals make it look unusual. It could be Shrubby Butterweed?
Very close to the Yellow and Shrubby Butterweed.
Sally your choice I was teeter-tottering with and I agree it may be the Yellow Butter weed.
I think it would be easier if we knew where the photograph was taken and had a description of the leaves and the height of the plant.
Yes it is a good idea to find out what region and state this flower picture was taken from. Then we can try and locate the flower choice of that state. Good ideas Sally.
Yes, thank you, Eugene. I do photo searches but have to wonder if I discovered a rare species. I may go back to the location some day and get a specimen if it isn't elusive.
Very similar to the Hall's Mule Ear. Thought it might be in either the Helenium or Rudbeckia family but nope. Photo was taken at Perrot State Park by Trempeauleau, Wisconsin, along the Mississippi.
I think the Butterweed looks more likely as the Mule Ear has more petals.
Its related to someone and I hope to narrow it down someday. There are some flowers that are similar but the ends of the petals are unique on these particular flowers.
Close to the Common Blennosperma. What a pretty flower. Thanks for sharing that, Chuck. I learned something new.
